Jacob Gottlieb, of the most referred titans in the health industry has added a new cup to his series of entrepreneurial acquisitions. This time, he has taken over Altium Capital, a healthcare-oriented investment fund.
This move is expected to elicit some excitement and bring in great things to the healthcare industry. The fund has laid its focus on investment opportunities, especially those related to growth of companies in the healthcare field. Gottlieb is particularly keen on seeking out business outfits that offer sound medical and health treatment advances.
Notably, Altium capital has been recently linked with various investments that include Amarin Corporation, Oramed Medicals, and Oragenics. This is a sign of good tidings to come. This is especially so, looking at how such investments are expected to revolutionize the healthcare industry.
Following this notable venture, Gottlieb now co-shares office space with Stuart Weisbrod, another notable healthcare investment behemoth. This collaboration is made better considering the fact that the two have worked together before at Merlin Biomed Group. This is expected to be a start of other future collaborations between the two.
Gottlieb’s investment mind was sharpened at Brown University where he acquired his BA in Economics. He then got an internal internship, and this may have spurred Gottlieb’s interest even further in investing in the health industry.
Gottlieb has always had an eye for investment, especially in the health industry. Before getting involved in Altium, he had previously founded Visium Asset Management in 2005. This company went on to become highly successful and by 2016, it had expanded into an $8 billion fund, employing well over 200 workers.
Considering that Gottlieb is looking to better tidings in future, he is keen to ensure that his current investments get the right resources and expertise that will help scale higher. He has, therefore been fine tuning his skills each time to ensure that he keeps up with the constantly changing business environment. He fully understands the sensitivity of the healthcare business and is, therefore, keen to ensure that he stands out from the rest. This, he says, can only be made possible with personal discipline and an eye for opportunities.
